This beer was of course one of a kind, the flavor was a little cognaqui, the smell like flowers and caramel. I like it! punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Dark brown pour with a purple hint. Smells of molasses, prune juice and a bit of spice. Lots of alcohol comes out in teh smell as it warms up. Flavor is much of the same as the aroma with some hopiness on the finish. Medium-thin body, high carbonation, and a lasting alcohol burn. zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle, 2005. Pours pale ruby, thin off white head. Aroma is spicey, smokey, and fruity, Flavor is very sweet fruit, beef jerky, alcohol, and yeast. Strange. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
Tasted 2001 through 2005. 2001 was a dark reddish amber with no head and strong signs of maderization, maple and celery salt. In mouth, oxidized malt, vinous, with warm scotch alcoho, rich and smooth. Well blended. 7-4-8-4-15 <!-- BR --><!-- BR --> 2003 to 2005, were lighter coloured more like scotch/whiskey, no head. 2003 and 2004 had a lightly sweet liquorish aroma, with nougat, vanilla and aniseed. The mouthfeel was rich and smooth. 2005 was less complex, less sweet malts, relying on alcohol content, like a tequila almost. Overall, prefered 2003 and 2004. mbeem (104) - New Hope, Alabama, USA - SEP 10, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 12 oz. bottle 2003 vintage. Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet! Almost like drinking a liqueur. Have drunk cognac with similar fumes as this. Thick, oily palate. Cloying favors with a brandy-like warmth from the alcohol. A little too much. Gimme a good Ayinger Celebrator.

12 oz bottle, 2004 vintage. Pours a clear bright copper body under a very fizzy two finger beige head that almost completely disappeared. Aroma is an all out malt bomb with a hefty dose of alcohol fumes. Very clean though overall. Flavor starts out very sweet and one dimensionally malty and finishes with a hot alcohol burn. Alot of fig, date and toffee in the middle. Mouthfeel is thick and full bodied yet for all the sweetness it isn’t overly cloying. Carbonation is soft and fine. Overall, this is as fresh tasting as ever, even after almost two years. Gonna take a long time for this to take on an aged character. beermouth (435) - Langeskov, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2006

2005 bottle; Nose is caramel malt and dark fruit; copper orange with a small beige head; caramel, toffee, and dark fruit flavor with some alcohol, the alcohol lasting into the finish. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Orangy amber with a fine carbed short beige head. Caramel and alcohol nose with some prune juice there. Sweet caramel, toffee, raisins, prunes topped off with stewed apples and hot alcohol. Medium sticky feel with a long warming touch on the throat. Ok, but OTT alcohol. SSSteve (4006) - - SEP 4, 2006
